Spending Less on Food – A New Year’s Resolution Post

Hello again, sorry about the long hiatus! The “Holiday Season” being what it is, we just didn’t seem to get around to updating on here. Welcome to 2017, in which a bunch of people seem to believe that one particular midnight is going to erase all the insanity of 2016,…

My Miscarriage Story

Warning: This post contains details of a miscarriage. If you are at a point where you may not be ready or comfortable reading these details, written in an honest but perhaps somewhat off-the-cuff manner and absolutely “TMI”, please feel free to browse some of our other excellent offerings, such as…

How to Make an Advent Calendar

One of my favorite holiday traditions is my yearly advent calendar. If you don’t know what an advent calendar is, it’s a calendar used to count down to Christmas. It can either be a paper calendar with flaps to cover fun pictures for each day, or some type of calendar-style…

My First Vegan Thanksgiving

I decided to transition to a vegan diet in July 2016, which means this Thanksgiving was my first Thanksgiving as a vegan. Rather than go to my regular extended family event and only be able to eat a few dishes, I decided I would cook my own entirely vegan menu…

Spooky Halloween Lighting Tips

Bitches love Fall.  A large part of why bitches love Fall is Halloween. American Halloween is all about costumes and candy and campy movies about monsters and witches (and actually scary movies presumably but i am not looking to be scared in my free time thank you very much). What’s…

”The Good Place” New Series Review

Fall TV… I have a love/hate relationship with the concept.  On the one hand, I love TV and I love having more options for stuff to watch when I feel like ignoring responsibilities or to help me avoid going into a panic on the weekends when I haven’t left home…
